Hello List,

I deleted a kerio-user, but kept the data. Now his supervisor needs the mail, so they can see, which work is already done.
It is strictly business mail, there are no privacy issues.
Can I add the Mailboxes in a subfolder of the supervisors account? How so? Do I need to reindex?

Is there already a How-To somewhere I was unable to find?

I'd appreciate your help,

Fred

Hi, Fred.

Yes, you can move/copy the emails. Say Cartman wants to see Timmy's email. Have Cartman make a new folder, "TimmysEmail". (Technically that step is optional.) Then copy or move Timmy's email into that folder.

cp -r /opt/kerio/mailserver/store/mail/southpark.com/timmy/INBOX/* /opt/kerio/mailserver/store/mail/southpark.com/cartman/TimmysEmail/


That's about it.

One more thing. In the USA, there's no privacy issue with your work email: It's essentially the employer's property. Companies usually have an employee privacy statement that details how the company handles this. But the bottom line is that you are not entitled to any privacy on your company email.

an easier (entirely in webmail) way would be to just copy those folders into the public folders and from there either set permissions so only the boss can see these mails (that would be the cleaner way to do that - make a subfolder called "deleted users" and put the mails there) or copy the folder from the public folders to your boss' mail folder from there. No need to use the cli.

Except that he deleted the user. In order to do as you suggest he'd have to recreate the user account first then setup the share & permissions, etc.

I don't think that's easier or faster than cp -r /timmy /cartman/timmysMail. It took me 5 seconds. Beat that! Wink

You forgot to use parameter '-P' in cp. Also, make sure that the folder belongs to deleted user who no longer use KMS. Copying folders of existing KMS users is not recommended and may break synchronization with clients. In rare cases some clients may force deletion of user data in such situation.

Hey,

not really - when he deleted the user, I assumed he put the user's files somewhere, preferably as a subfolder to the admin account Wink

And yes, of course cp'ing the folder is a lot faster, but for people inexperienced with the command line, all hell breaks loose if you fail. And I am not even sure if cp works on windows servers, I don't thin they have that command in the command promt (but I can be very wrong since I am far from a Windows expert).
